Religious Pot! (It makes a change from soggy tomato sandwiches)

What’s going on inside your head right now? Stop and think about it for a minute.

I was listening to someone talk about the AMISH killings, so all of that and more is going through my head:

Religious Pot

Some Amish

The Exclusive Brethren (because we just can’t leave them alone)
A pinch of Presbytarian (throw in a few of their liberal for a bit of spice)

The pope

As much Islam as you can cope with

Any other religion that takes your fancy and mix together till you get the consistency you like. (Some like it real smooth, so well blended that you can’t tell by looking into the pot what’s what anymore. It’s just a tan to black colour of what was once a lot of religions or christian groups/sects.)

The world is too full of groups and sub groups. Every decision to be made comes fully equipped with a committee, sub committee and chair person for each. And you can’t forget the one committee member who has to take the pip and storm out, just when we thought the whole nightmare of it all what going to be resolved an we could just move on and start getting back to normality. Are all of these groups normal? Should it be acceptable? We can’t stop people from forming clubs and all of that, maybe violent street gangs – that would be great – but the thing is, even if the pot isn’t stirred, we can’t tell religious groups (that’s meant to be my topic so better stick with it) apart any more. Maybe it’s always been that way. I’m sure you disagree. You are saying to yourself, hang on, the Exclusive Brethren is different from Presbyterians. Yeah, whatever. As far as I am concerned, I can’t see any group trying to really set themselves apart for any good purpose. Radical Islamics set themselves apart for evil purposes but what about the Christians of this world. New paragraph needed.

So, here I am rambling. It’s a tuesday morning. And the sun is finally shining. No, I’m not rambling. I am making sense. Christians are either squabbling about what is right and acceptable in their church, or they are being accused of such and such or they are doing or not doing, saying or not saying something else that has to become media news! I’m a christian. Maybe I’m just as bad as the rest. In the religious pot we look all the same. It doesn’t matter whether we choose to wear only black or worship on Saturday or whatever. It doesn’t matter that we may have different interpretations on some passages of scripture. NONE OF IT MATTERS!!

All around the world Christian groups and Christians in general are being bullied and singled out as different and wrong and weird. Not Islam. Oh no, not Islam. Not even radical Islam. Christians! Because we are all sad and all the same no matter what we look like or how we dress or what stance we take on whatever.

What is going on in your head? Is it time to sack the chairman (chairperson if your into that PC rubbish) and all the members of the committee in your brain? Except of course for the one member who took the pip. He may have saved you from insanity cause he refused to go along with the rest of the members who don’t have a clue. My brains like that. Seriously. ALL THE TIME. And outside of my brain, in the world around, life is like that. Church life is like that. Honest God fearing Christians think, it’s all necessary and that their church would crash if, God forbid, their cream sponge committee wasn’t present on the day. And society just can’t have that now, can it?!
BUT WHERE IS MY CREAM SPONGE? With all these committees, and I estimate a few thousand cream sponge committees in the world, when are they going to start meaning anything of importance?! I just can’t see the benefits and sense of it all. Sometimes I wonder why God just doesn’t take the religious pot, flush it down the toilet and start again.

The great unveiling of me, myself, and ilovemrstiggywinkle

I have decided unanimously (my brain is a complex thing) to blog about “other” stuff instead of the silly things I have been posting so far. If you have read my blogs you will agree, it has all been too much of a time waster. So I had a bit of a clean out and a think while doing so about what really matters to me, and if I carry on like this I’ll start raving so I’ll shut up soon.

I guess I will be a little bit more serious than what I have been, but as always not too serious (depending on the topic of course).

NB: My “Ode To Dear Mrs Tiggy-Winkle” is a very serious matter, as is music. I have found some cool tunes on the net as you may have already discovered. If not, have a look. You can never have too much music in your life. 🙂

Also, I seriously do prefer Bill English as Leader of the Nats. But I plan not to push that one any longer. It just seems pointless. And if there is not much point to why you are doing something, then why do it? That’s what I’ve decided anyway.

So, I’m still here, somewhere…

…yep still here 🙂

Ode To Dear Mrs Tiggy-winkle

Through the door into the back of the hill lives Dear Mrs Tiggy-winkle. She loves to wash out every stain and make clothes look brand new again.

She’s also an excellent clear starcher, if you please ‘m.

She warms her iron on the stove, for pressing linen, pinnies and clothes. Ironed flat and folded neat, as a washerwomen, she’s hard to beat!

And as she goes about her work She sings a little song:

“Lily-white and clean, oh!
With little frills between, oh!
Smooth and hot-red rusty spot

Never here be seen, oh!”

Now, I don’t mind hanging out clothes to dry, it’s a job I quite enjoy. But ironing is different matter Mrs Tiggy-winkle I’d love to employ.

She works so hard the whole day through, and gets everything so pristine.
For she loves to wash, iron and mend and starch clothes sparkling clean.

Another one of her specialties, if you please ‘m.
She is an inspiration to all women everywhere!

Mrs Tiggy-winkle, I love you and wish you could come and do my ironing!


YAH! For the Weekend!

I’m so glad that the weekend is here. I have entered relaxation mode. Even though there is one hundred and one things to do, ’tis all a haze. It’s quite good really:)

Some tunes to boogie down to over the weekend and beyond.

New Prayer for Parliament

Dear God

Help me to keep my big mouth shut till I know what I am talking about.


He who conceals his hatred has lying lips, and he who spreads slander is a fool. When words are many, sin is not absent, but he who holds his tongue is wise. Proverbs 10:18-19

(I think this applies to us all!)

What’s happened to the real issues?

I pulled gladwrap off a hot dish in the microwave and burnt my finger with the steam. Over an hour later, and after sitting it in a glass of water it still stings like heck! In fact I am wondering if typing is making it worse. But though I’ll survive, what if I had injured my whole hand and needed to go to the hospital? Have you seen how busy the emergency dept can get?? Yeah, I know they don’t need someone like me taking up a bed but hey, if it did happen, I know they’d cope, but could they be coping better??? What is Labour doing for health these days??

On a brighter note, they are giving South Aucks more police. I thought I read it somewhere, but thinking about it I think I heard it on the news so no link:( Well, ‘pose I could find one – and here it is.

Something more pleasant to listen to than Aunty Helen and Brother Don

Man instead of the current slinging matches, what about more funding for police to help them get the killer(s) of the Kahui twins, and get other murderers and rapists and other bad people? Hey we are all sinners and guilty of slagging off I’m sure but Parliament needs to grow up! Soon the Maori party will be older than the other parties the way things are going.

Anyway chill out with these cool tunes (Warning: this music is a refreshing change that’s louder than Labour but definately likable:)

“What mummy says is important.” – ScrubOne

It’s a universal truth, no link available.

The Pope should appoligise to everyone non Islamic!

How can the Pope say he didn’t mean what he said re: Islam?? (Some of the comments made by Pope fans in this link are interesting too.) Why say something, in a lecture of all places!, if you don’t mean it??? I bet it’s ’cause he got scared of a bomb dropping on his head. So much for “church” standing up for what is right! BTW if you don’t read Tammy Bruce, now’s good:)


I’m kinda newish to this blogging stuff, but I can see why you can get hooked on to it. ScrubOne has certainly been a busy boy with all the posts he’s done so far! I doubt I’ll ever get that diligent. However, Realising that ScrubOne intends to keep his blogs serious and for others to definitely read, I will try and maintain a certain level of seriousness too (so as not to scare people off!) I’m not good at serious in the sense that I could end up being too serious and typing too much (like when you carry on talking and then end up saying too much sort of thing.) So I’ll be as serious as I have to for ScrubOne’s sake but no more than that, I assure you!

And at some stage, when I have time to give her the credit due, I will explain my blog name: ilovemrstiggywinkle. An ode to dear old Mrs Tiggy Winkle will be posted in the not toooo distant future. One to watch out for. And I can assure you, a bit of light relief after all the politics you are probably more accustomed to reading, (unless of course you were searching for all things Mrs Tiggy Winkle.) Though Mrs Tiggy Winkle is a serious matter. After all I wouldn’t have chosen her name otherwise!

Happy blogging!
